You may think you cannot do anything about your double chin but that is not true. You can try many different chin exercises to help tone your facial muscles. Certain exercises can help tighten up the skin around your jaw line and reduce the appearance of double chin. It is certainly important to pay attention to your diet and try ways to lose weight.

Double Chin Exercises

You may have a double chin because of many different reasons. It could be because you are overweight, or it could be because this issue runs in your family. Whatever the case, the following exercises may help make things better.

1. Tongue Presser

The exercise will help tone your muscles around your neck and jaw. Here is what to do:

  • Sit in a comfortable position with your shoulders down and back straight.
  • Tilt your head back and look at the ceiling. Now, pressure your tongue to the roof of your mouth – be sure to press forcefully.
  • Keeping your tongue in the same position, slowly lower your chin until it is close to your chest. Do not let your upper back become round.
  • Return to the starting position. Do two sets with 20 reps per set.

2. Try the O

It is one of the best double chin exercises that will target your jaw line directly.

  • Sit in a comfortable position with shoulders down, back straight, and head tilted back.
  • With your lips closed, slowly open your mouth to form an "O". Ensure that you notice a contraction on the sides of your neck under your jaw line. Maintain this position for 20 seconds.
  • Return to the starting position and do two sets with 10 reps per set.

3. Kiss the Roof

The exercise will help strengthen your neck muscles and target your jaw line as well.

  • Stand in a comfortable position with your arms hanging at your sides and head tilted back.
  • Pucker your lips while looking at the ceiling. Imagine as if you are trying to kiss the ceiling. Extend your lips as far as you can to feel a real stretch in your neck and chin.
  • Maintain this position for five seconds and then return to the starting point.
  • Perform 2 sets with 15 repetitions per set.

4. Stretch the Neck

You can stretch your neck to tone and tighten up the muscles around this area.

  • Sit in a comfortable position. Place your hand on the floor about a foot away from your hip. Ensure that you keep fingers down all the time. Do not put your body weight on your fingertips.
  • Place your other hand on top of your head with your palm close to your opposite ear.
  • While making sure that your head is aligned with your neck, gently bend your head toward your shoulder.
  • Then, take your hand off the floor and place it over your upper arm. Gently, press your shoulder down. Be sure to move it away from your head.
  • Stay in this position for 10 seconds and then return to the starting point.
  • Do three such reps.

5. The Scoop

This is again one of the easiest yet effective double chin exercises. Here is how to perform it:

  • Sit in a comfortable position with your mouth opened.
  • Gently roll your lower lip over your lower teeth as if you are trying to scoop water with your jaw.
  • Slowly move your head down and lift your head. Be sure to close your mouth when you lift your head.
  • Keep the corners of your lips relaxed while performing the exercise.
  • Perform 5-7 repetitions.

6. Touch Your Nose

Any weakness in the hyoid muscles may well be an underlying cause of a double chin. This exercise will help strengthen those muscles.

  • Sit in a comfortable position and try to stick your tongue out as much as you can. Try to touch your nose with your tongue.
  • Be sure to keep your lips relaxed throughout the exercise.
  • Do 5 reps per set.

7. Puffy Cheeks

Looking for effective double chin exercises? Try this one! Do it regularly to help make your double chin less prominent.

  • Sit in a comfortable position and take deep breath through your mouth. Fill your mouth with air and then close it. Puff up your cheeks.
  • Gently press your palms into your puffed up cheeks to create some tension in your facial muscles.
  • Maintain this position for 3-5 seconds and then return to the starting position.
  • Repeat 5 times.

8. Platysma Exercise

There is a muscle that runs from your jaw line and moves toward your shoulder – it is called the platysma. By exercising this muscle, you can help keep your neck and chin firm. Here is an exercise to try:

  • Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight.
  • While turning the corners of your mouth down, pull your lips back and open your mouth a little. This will help activate muscles around your jaw line.
  • Be sure to press your lips against your teeth without changing the position of the corners of your mouth. Press firmly to feel a good stretch in the tendons of your neck.
  • Now, wiggle your lower jaw a few times and return to the starting position.
  • Repeat 5-10 times.
